If only Office spent as much money delivering lowest prices as they do in claiming that they offer lowest prices. Check out a price comparison published in the Adelaide Advertiser yesterday. The difference between Officeworks and Newspower is extraordinary.
I am surprised that with evidence like this that someone does not challenge the Officeworks claim. of course, they will say they are lower through their price guarantee. the ACCC should reject this as it’s a con as consumers only get Officeworks to be lower by shopping around themselves – most will not do this, they will believe the Officeworks advertising spin.
The message here for Australian and small businesses families is simple – for back to school, back to uni, back to work – shop at your local newsagent. besides competitive prices, you are leaving more money in the local community.
